God shows us the Fruit of the Spirit

When we are filled with the Holy Spirit, others can see it by how we live our lives. “Is your life bearing fruit?”, is a good question to ask ourselves regularly.

In this episode, I take a look at 5 fruit: joy, peace, faithfulness, generosity, and kindness. It is helpful to look at these from the perspective of how God shows them to us, gives them to us and then how we give them to others by our actions.

Here are a few verses for you to contemplate:

Joy

“You will show me the path to life, abounding joy in your presence, the delights at your right hand forever.” Psalm 16:11

Peace

“I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.” John 16:33

Faithfulness

“good indeed is the Lord, His mercy endures forever, his faithfulness lasts through every generation.” Psalm 100:5

Generosity

“You are being enriched in every way for all generosity, which through us produces thanksgiving to God.” 2 Corinthians 9:11

Kindness

“Then I remembered the mercies of the Lord, his acts of kindness through ages past; For he saves those who take refuge in him, and rescues them from every evil.” Sirach 51:8

the not lukewarm challenge
Spend some time this week asking God to show you where the fruit of the Spirit has been in your life. Where have you seen God as joy, peace, faithfulness, generosity and kindness. And how have you given those to others?
